Bosnia & Herzegovina are looking to restore their pride after a surprise home defeat to Finland last time out ruled them out of contention for World Cup qualification in Group D. They host Ukraine in their final group fixture with the visitors still in with a chance of making the playoffs.

A win over Finland would have given Bosnia & Herzegovina plenty to play for going into their final group fixture on Tuesday. However, they failed to recover from a slow start and despite Luka Menalo’s effort midway through the second half, fell to a 3-1 defeat.

That defeat was the first in five qualifying matches for Bosnia & Herzegovina, who were looking to make a late push in Group D.
Bosnia’s campaign has been generally hampered by too many draws having been held four times in seven qualifying matches. Ivaylo Petev’s men have also struggled defensively, keeping just one clean sheet throughout the qualifiers.

France have already secured the automatic ticket in Group D, so Ukraine are only playing for a playoff spot. The head into Tuesday’s clash needing a win and a favour from the French in order to seal second place.

Ukraine travel to Bosnia & Herzegovina off the back of a 1-1 draw in a friendly against Bulgaria with Tara’s Stepanenko’s second half effort ensuring a share of the spoils. That result is a pointer to their problems in the World Cup qualifiers as they have been held six times in seven matches.

Oleksandr Petrakov’s men have also struggled to keep things tight at the back and have conceded in all seven of their qualifying matches in Group D.
